DPT--Some Flu Preps You Can Do Now
Many people (and major health organizations) think that flu, possibly of the pandemic kind, will come back even more forcefully than we saw early this summer when the swine flu made an appearance. Just an idea, but if this is true than it only makes sense to start taking steps now to prepare for such an event. Some things you might want to stockpile now: masks, meds (the over the counter kind such as Thera Flu, Tylenol, aspirin, etc. Whether or not you stock prescription anti-virals is a personal decision), "sick kit" stuff (thermometer, cough drops, etc), more food for your emergency food supply, and more cash for your emergency fund in case you can not work for an extended period of time.
